Work on the controversial Site C dam could begin in as early as two weeks, and opponents are vowing to stop it.
BC Hydro says site preparation could begin July 8th, although it has yet to choose a proponent for the construction of the dam.
Chief of the West Moberly First Nations, Roland Willson, says it will file an injunction for a stop-work order.
“Injunctions for sure, on this we have to follow the law, but we can. We’ve got members that are upset, and we’ve been talking to them and stuff like that, but we can’t control what they do.”
The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources says it has yet to make final decisions on the 45 permit applications.
The Treaty 8 First Nations have applied for judicial review of Ottawa’s decision to support the project.
The Federal Appeal begins July 20th.
